It is well with my Soul

I made this card for a friend who is suffering from depression, and struggling with financial difficulties. I wanted to remind her that no matter what the circumstances, that God is with her and that it IS WELL with her soul. It was also a reminder to me as well. I wanted this card to look "RICH". I used Gold ribbon, gold ep on the butterfly, the hymn was printed on gold tissue paper. You can't see it from the photo, and I tried taking several photos, there is a gold sparkle and shimmer to the tissue paper. I also used gold foil from a candy bar. I glued the foil to cardstock and embossed. My sons were selling candy bars to raise money for boy scout camp. I bought one and gave it to my daughter. I told her she could eat all the chocolate, but had to give me the wrapper. She thought she made out better on that deal. I used dp from DCWV the mariposa stack. I added lace and pearls. I stitched the card together with my sewing machine. The butterfly was a LAYERS of COLOR butterfly.
